it's a ridiculous price for an unproven 'upgrade' (?). I can foresee many previous users shying away from it for those reasons alone, and Intuit saying, "See, we were right. Mac users aren't interested in an upgrade."
Since you’re new to Macs and not a techie, I can imagine that you’re having a hard time following complicated instructions.
I’m not a techie either and don’t know if you have the same problem I’ve had; however, in my case, AI members suggested that I empty the Trash. That worked for me. Probably too simplistic in your case but worth a try.
Don’t give up on Macs. They might present a high learning curve at first, but you’ll find them better than PCs. I used...
Have you tried re-launching Finder or http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/160979/flaky-mavericks?
Keep AI abreast of what you have tried so far and what results you've had; otherwise, AI members won't know how to help you.
I’ve had similar problems on my iMac when I “upgraded” (?) to Mavericks. One thing that helped was relaunching ‘Finder’. It would work for a while and then I’d lose drag and drop again. After many cycles like that, it must have straightened itself out as I no longer have the problem.
Check out this thread if relaunching Finder doesn’t work:
The second I submitted the previous post, Safari Web Content jumped from 92.2 MB to 197 MB. Is that usual?
BTW, clicking on 'Edit' in the previous post didn't produce an editing window. Would that be something on my end or on AI's end?
Does anyone know how to stop Safari content from consuming total Memory?
i get error messages that there is no more free memory even when Safari isn’t being over used.
For example, I was working a USA crossword puzzle and watching Activity Monitor. Safari Content just ate up all 8 GBs of memory within a few minutes. When I dumped the puzzle, Memory Used dropped to 3.35 GB.
No large apps such as Office are open.
I’ve tried using Safari in similar ways...
